Systolic Blood Presure 90 To 110
Normal: A BP of 100/60 is normal for your age.If you are concerned that it might be too low a standing BP would help. Normally on standing the systolic BP will decrease by 5-10 mm Hg and the diastolic BP will increase by 5-10 mm Hg. If you get lightheaded or dizzy on standing or your systolic BP decreases by 20 mm Hg or more OR your diastolic BP decreases by 10 mm Hg or more your blood pressure is too low ...Read more
Blood pressure is a measurement of the force placed on the blood vessels and is comprised of the "systolic" pressure (the top number on a blood pressure meter) which is the peak pressure when the heart is pumping, and the "diastolic" pressure (the bottom number on a blood pressure meter) which is the pressure during the resting phase ...Read more
Please help me! i overdosed on caffeine 7 hours ago, and my blood pressure increased by 90 points (from 120 to 210 systolic). Can this be dangerous?
Yes: Caffeine should be used in small doses only. It is a powerful cardiac stimulant and should not be abused. By now the effect is probably gone but you should not test it again. If you do not feel well and your BP is 210, you belong in the er (in spite of being 18yo) do not abuse your body. It is not indestructible. ...Read more
Should I be concerned if lately I have had a difference of 50 between my systolic and dystolic blood pressure?
My blood pressure changes over 20 mg systolic with changing positions. It's not high but should I be concerned?
Normal: Systolic BP will normally drop initially when you first stand up, then normalize over the next 10 to 60 seconds depending on your age and state of hydration. Medication, alcohol, and many other factors can also affect it. Diastolic BP will normally rise when you first stand. HR will quicken. These are all normal, physiologic changes. ...Read more
Is there anyway to lower your blood pressure if you have dsystolic dsyfunction also I have normal stystolic pressure?
Important to lower: Diastolic dysfunction refers to a stiff ventricle and impaired relaxation of the heart. It is often marked by thickened heart muscle and implies that the heart has seen intermittent high blood pressure. If you have diastolic dysfunction documented on echo, it is important to assess your 24 hr blood pressure with an ambulatory blood pressure monitor to determine if medication is indicated. ...Read more
Is it normal for blood pressure to be 102/55 and then next minute 120/85 then another minute 114/67? Systolic low number scares me. Male 22.
My blood pressure in the morning is usually around 135/85 systolic and dyastolic but rises to around 145/87 in the afternoon; what could be resposible?
Nervous system?: In the morning, your parasympathetic nervous system (pns) is more active, this will tend to keep your BP low. However as the day progresses you may be overly actviating your sympathetic nervous system (sns)- this could cause an increase in bp. Other things to consider are caffeine, sugar, fried foods and other stressors you may be exposed to during the day. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Systolic BP: Blood pressure is reported as - systolic bp/ diastolic bp. Upper number is the pressure generated when your heart beats or ejects blood from the heart and the lower number is when the heart is at rest between the heart beats. Best BP is 120/80. Systolic BP > 130 and diastolic > 80 need to be followed or treated. ...Read more
